OK, someone gave me the argument "well but it's just to avoid security
vulnerability disclosure", but even if it was true (the UA really isn't
specific on this), as the UA is written I don't think we could *ever*
talk about *anything* we see there.  Not even days after an actual bugs
was found, nor ever -- which in addition of being silly disallows
discussion on how not to reproduce it in the future.

Hum, I tried to register with my GitHub account just to see if I'd get a
link to these mythical Scan Terms of Use during the process, and… I
didn't have to accept *anything*, no nothing, like click and boom
"you're registered".  So apparently now I do have an account there --
but I still can't find these Scan Term of Use.
